So far, Elon Musk, founder of electric car Tesla, was just a thorn for large car manufacturers. But by now has become an enemy for conventional automotive. Why? See below how Musk is “likely” to change the ground of automotive history.
Who knows what the words “open source” means, can predict the problem that carmakers will have with Elon Musk. As founder of Tesla said, just one day before the Friday-the-13th that he intends to publish all patents used in its electric cars, but also for charging Supercharger network.
Making a parenthesis, patents for the automotive world are something vital in maintaining competitiveness, from their being able to obtain huge profits (or going into “dark side” may impede the development of rival companies). If company X prototyped a technological idea, any other firm is forced to pay to use that idea. Or invest to create something similar.
Elon Musk apparently does not think so and makes a revolutionary step and announced that on the company’s blog in a post novel called “All our patents belong to you”. Tesla boss simply keep the desire to rush popularizing electric cars. Musk says that the big car manufacturers are moving too slowly in this direction, so decided to give them a boost.
Fresh joke on the internet: The Chinese thank Elon Musk for this decision, but does not help them, because they still intend to copy patents Tesla
